After calling Vornado Corporation, they suggested that the room temperature monitor might be failing as it read 65 degrees no matter where you started the heater. I took the unit back to the store I purchased it from, and we unpacked another unit and found the same problem existed. Therefore, the product is not capable of heating a room properly and I will continue my search for a space heater to control the temperature in my upstairs office which does not have air ducts for heat.
If anyone has recommendations I would be interested in their comments.

Turn up your outside thermostat in the outside unit.
You should have about 3 degrees difference in one stage to the next. So I would change the thermosat with one that has three stages of heat.

There is a round sensor under the heating elements which sets off the alarm when it thinks it is overheating on the PRH11. Unfortunately, a dirty sensor will fool it into reacting like it is overheated. I cleaned the sensor which was dark and revealed it to be a lighter goldish maybe brass in its original color. If your sensor is dark, it will continue to trip the alarm for overheating and will need to be replaced. If you were lucky like I was and can clean it, the problem should be resolved and it will operate like normal until it gets dirty again. This procedure lasted for 3 days and I had to clean it again. I believe I left the dirt on too long and now my sensor has tarnished plus I live in a rural area with significant dust requiring this recleaning every few days. I only used a damp paper towel with water to clean. Cleaning may work better with alcohol or a tarnish removal solution.

After I have been reading up on your unit it appears that the thermostat is not operating correctly. I found this real basic information on installation for your unit. This link I am giving is pretty basic instal schematics. But seems to be something about your thermostat needs to be dialed in or is not working properly.
I hope this helps some. Mike
